All booths were essentially active the whole weekend, both during the show and even after hours. And speaking of after hours, Virtual Pop Expo continued to offer content even when panels were done for the day with events like an interview with the Jedi Fallen Order development team, an Auxxit happy hour, a WWE panel, and even live D&D!
Meanwhile on Saturday, kicking off the Star Wars Block (presented by Hot Topic), Greg Grunberg talked about the projects he has lined up, as well as the current social climate and how “quarantainment” is taking over with Zoom and other streaming services. And later, fellow Star Wars star Ashley Eckstein got to take a trip down memory lane and recall the journey of the hit show Clone Wars which recently premiered its series finale on Disney Plus.
Ashley touchingly shared about the impact of the show but more importantly the impact of the fans who helped breathe life back into the series when it originally finished its run in 2014. She also got to talk about her clothing brand Her Universewhich has really propelled forward apparel specifically for female fans – and now the line proudly provides fashion & accessories for everyone!
Particularly during Ashley’s panel, the chats were blowing up with tremendous amounts of support and love, thanking her for creating Her Universe, helping those in need, and being an advocate for mental health.
And though Virtual Pop Expo had so, so many more panels, we can’t leave out mentioning something very special… the Virtual Cosplay Contest!
Contestants submitted pre-recorded footage and images of their homemade cosplay to maximize image quality on the stream, and the cosplay was all fantastic! It truly was as brilliant as any top notch comic con cosplay contest. And with guest judges Ivy Doomkitty, Hendo Art, Cutiepie Sensei, and Kelton FX, one lucky grand prize winner was going home with an amazing Wacom One tablet! Check out some of the cosplay below:
